Social determinants of health and local government: understanding and uptake of ideas in two Australian states.
CONCLUSION: Resources need to be dedicated to systematic research on practical implementation of interventions on social determinants of health inequities and towards providing staff with more practical information about interventions and tools to evaluate those interventions. IMPLICATIONS: The findings suggest there is support for action addressing the social determinants of health in local government. The findings extend similar research regarding SDoH and government in NZ and Canada to Australian local government.

A nurse-led intervention improved blood-borne virus testing and vaccination in Victorian prisons.
CONCLUSIONS: The nurse-led intervention resulted in substantially increased testing and vaccination, demonstrating the benefits of a concerted effort to improve BBV and STI management in correctional settings. IMPLICATIONS: The availability of new treatments for hepatitis C has precipitated expansion of treatment in prisons. Improving the testing rate of prisoners, the first step in the treatment cascade, will maximise the benefits.

A case study of enhanced clinical care enabled by Aboriginal health research: the Hearing, EAr health and Language Services (HEALS) project.
CONCLUSIONS: HEALS delivered rapid and effective specialist healthcare services through an existing research collaboration with five ACCHS, cooperation from local health service providers, and effective community engagement. Implications for Public Health: HEALS serves as a framework for targeted, enhanced healthcare that benefits Aboriginal communities by encapsulating the 'no research without service' philosophy.

Risk factors, incidence, consequences and prevention strategies for falls and fall-injury within older indigenous populations: a systematic review.
CONCLUSION: Falls are a significant and growing health issue for older indigenous people worldwide that can lead to severe health consequences and even death. No fully-evaluated, indigenous-specific fall prevention programs were identified.

The association between exposure to interpersonal violence and suicide among women: a systematic review.
CONCLUSIONS: Although the association between suicide and interpersonal violence requires further investigation, being a victim or perpetrator of violence appears to be associated with risk of suicide. Future research should focus on the impact that the type of violence, victim-perpetrator relationship and proximity of violence has on the risk of death from suicide.

Adolescent inhalant abuse leads to other drug use and impaired growth; implications for diagnosis.
CONCLUSIONS: Adolescent inhalant abuse increases the risk for subsequent and earlier drug use. It also impairs growth such that individuals meet 'failure to thrive' criteria, representing an improved diagnostic model for inhalant abuse.

Age of onset of obesity and risk of type 2 diabetes.
CONCLUSIONS: While obese-years was the optimal obesity construct to explain risk of type 2 diabetes, age of onset may be a useful, practical addition to current BMI in the elderly.

Mandatory responses to public health and safety recommendations issued by coroners: a content analysis.
CONCLUSIONS: Our findings suggest that the founding objectives of Victoria's innovative mandatory response regime are being compromised by the opacity of many response letters. IMPLICATIONS FOR PUBLIC HEALTH: Recommendations from the coroner can profoundly affect whether the community is exposed to unsafe practices, policies and products, but without such compliance, the potential for the coroner to make a meaningful contribution to protecting public and safety is substantially compromised.

Prescription opioid dispensing and prescription opioid poisoning: Population data from Victoria, Australia 2006 to 2013.
CONCLUSIONS: Although both opioid prescribing and poisoning have increased, there is discrepancy between the exposed group (dispensings increased with age) and those with adverse consequences (rates peaked at ages 25-44 years). IMPLICATIONS: A better understanding is needed of drivers of prescribing and adverse consequences.

Who 'likes' alcohol? Young Australians' engagement with alcohol marketing via social media and related alcohol consumption patterns.
Abstract OBJECTIVE: To describe patterns of 'liking' alcohol marketing social media pages, and determine related alcohol consumption patterns among young Australians. METHODS: Participants were 1,001 Australians aged 15-29 years who completed a cross-sectional online survey. Logistic regression and ordinal logistic regression were used. RESULTS: A quarter (249/1001, 24.9%) liked at least one of the alcohol marketing social media pages, most commonly brands of spirits, cider and alcohol retailers. Underage participants were as likely as older participants to report liking these pages. Alcohol marketing so...

The quality and effectiveness of interventions that target multiple risk factors among young people: a systematic review.
Conclusions and Implications for Public Health: More methodologically rigorous evaluations of interventions targeting multiple risk factors among high-risk young people are required, especially for those delivered in community settings. Four key areas for improvement are: i) more precisely defining the risk factors experienced by high-risk young people; ii) achieving greater consistency across interventions; iii) standardising outcome measures; and iv) conducting economic analyses.

Impact of dental National Partnership Agreements on public dental service waiting lists in Queensland.
CONCLUSIONS: While the 'blitz' was successful in reducing waiting list numbers, this was not sustained. The deferred federal funding to states/territories for dental services may have worsened the situation. IMPLICATIONS FOR PUBLIC HEALTH: While an injection of funds to reduce the waiting list is important and has had an impact, to adequately address oral health will require not just continuing funding, but also a shift away from the current curative 'downstream' approach towards a health-promotive 'upstream' approach. This will reduce not only the cost of treatment, but also waiting lists. PMID: 27625069 [PubMed...

CONCLUSION: To our knowledge, this is the first time in Australia that person-level data from a clinical quality registry has been linked to hospital and mortality data across multiple Australian jurisdictions.

Talking about the not talked about: use of, and reactions to, a DVD promoting bowel cancer screening to Aboriginal people.
CONCLUSION: The weaknesses do not appear to lie with the resource itself but can be attributed partly to poor distribution and promotion. This may have been compounded by the structure of the National Bowel Cancer Screening Program, which limited the engagement of Aboriginal community members and health providers whose focus is largely directed towards more pressing health care issues.

Sex differences in the relationships between body dissatisfaction, quality of life and psychological distress.
CONCLUSION: High levels of body dissatisfaction may threaten the psychological and physical wellbeing of both men and women. Body dissatisfaction appears to be a public health problem, distinct from the eating disorders and other adverse psychological phenomena for which body dissatisfaction is commonly discussed as a risk factor. Males, historically understudied and underrepresented in body image research, warrant increased empirical attention.
